The Shanty Crew are singers of songs of the sea.


In the old days a shanty was a work song and that is what we sing.


We sing in the traditional manner, acapella without instruments.


Our songs are chorus songs gutsy and sometimes lustily sung.


The crew have been singing these songs since 1976 following a centuries old tradition of singing work songs.


The crew research the songs they sing and will share the benefit of that work with all who ask.


The crew will sing anywhere at any time if asked. Yacht Club, Pub, Marina or Festival.
